You Tube videos are monetized on YT. I am looking for other ways & suggestions. Maybe go for a sponsor? A pre roll? I am a freelance video reporter covering the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. I switched gears about a year ago from traditional Broadcast TV - producing and reporting to digital which seems to be evolving. I have a strong following on Twitter and have jumped from 5 thousand followers to 17 plus in 18 months and gain new ones every day. I also get new subscribers on YT every day. I am active on all social media channels as well I am looking for alternative revenue streams besides monetizing on You Tube. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I've monetized my own YouTube channel by offering online courses.
With a very small channel I've seen some quick revenues.
- 12 videos
- 150,000 views approx.
- 2100 subscribers
- on YouTube = $0
- from online courses sold through YouTube - $10k+ per month
If you're interested I put together a series of blog posts about how to do this here:
I've seen plenty of others do this as well, even with channels or subjects you wouldn't think would lend themselves to "education". Look for things your audience would be interested in learning - for you there's some great options from - MMA training, to how to report on MMA.
